3.55/5  rDev +13.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a golden color with a one finger white head. The head fades moderately fast to leave a lighter level of lacing.

Smell – The smell is quite heavy of a bready and corny aroma. While these smells are the main aroma there is a lighter sweet smell of caramel mixed within.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready and caramel flavor. As the taste moves forward the sweetness increases some with the caramel getting stronger as well as some flavors of corn coming to the tongue. In the end the sweetness fades some, leaving a slightly drier and bready flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is rather moderate in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is just slightly above average. The characteristics of the beer are really quite nice for the style, making it very drinkable but yet still allowing the malty flavors to shine through.

Overall – A pretty tasty lager. Very drinkable and a nice blend between sweet and malty. Not bad.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Light copper, white lacing, moderate head retention and good clarity. Would have liked a little more deeper color, perhaps an indicator of light grain bill.

Aroma: Good aroma, which is the best feature of this brew. Nice complexity, with layers of sweet caramel, toasty, and biscuit.

Taste: Clear flavors, although lacing the dynamic of the smell. Clean hop bitterness. Needs more malt backbone, as it drinks a little watery.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, light to medium body, which is very true to style. However, could remain in style range with a little more malts and the resulting body.

Overall: This beer is good, but not great. It certainly desires more love than it gets. It is a very refresher brew and on a nice hot day if I were to want a light malty beer, this would be a good selection. I do think if I were the recipe owner, I’d increase the malt bill by about 10%.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear gold with amber tones. Light head and no lace discernible.

Nose is subtle toasty grains and yeast. Nothing special.

Flavor brings this one back, though, with an odd tinge of tropical fruit rounding out the toasted grains. Seems quite well-balanced and not over-malted as some lagers can be. I say, this one's solid and well worthy.

A - Clear red hue with a 1.5 finger white head. Leaves some laces as it gradually disappears.

S - Not too much on the nose, some piney hops, but it's faint.

T - Comes in with caramel and two row malts first, then is followed by more of a bittering hop presence, mostly Northern Brewers as the description states. Hops are moderate but still noticeable. Finishes slightly bitter. Balance is generally good.

M - Fairly light for the style, easy enough to drink multiple beers in one sitting. Not quite sessionable though.

O - A decent Vienna lager. Nice to try to see the local take on the style, and a good update to their Ybor Gold Amber Lager. You can find better takes on the style though.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle, no #freshbeer date.

Chilled haze on a honey colored body. Initial 2-3 finger head settles to a fat ring with pock marks and mild lacing. Aroma is of nutty malt mixed with grainy cereal. Flavor is much the same. Honest, clean with no flaws. Came expecting not much but it's alright.
